Hey Mando--likewise on the enjoyment via a civil discussion on this...I am sure that all of us in this thread can continue to do I indicated in the other post, my real pt is in an entirely abstract sense, the most efficient means by which society can reduce violence to tolerable levels, given the common denominator of the ave Joe in the US (ahem...sorry, but it's got to factor in), we should avoid the "arm everyone" approach (while defending the right of really unique individuals to do so), and stick to the classic, less than perfect police state approach that's worked fairly well for 75 yrs or so (since the FBI decided machine guns req'd an equivalent response).

In view of the horrible circumstances this has been one of the best threads in a while, and I include in that Ringo's brave telling of her experience.

I'd just like to add a quote from Bill Hicks here - 'England, where no one has guns: 14 deaths. United States, and I think you know how we feel about guns - whoo! I'm gettin' a stiffy! - 23,000 deaths from handguns. But there's no connection, and you'd be a fool and a comunist to make one.'
